When it comes to taxes the conventional wisdom is that when a new tax is created it rarely goes away. It’s here to stay.
During the debate about construction of a new stadium for the Milwaukee Brewers I wore a few different hats while working at WTMJ.
Straight news reporter. I also wrote and voiced radio editorials. Filled in as an opinionated radio talk show host. And I was a panelist on Charlie Sykes’ Sunday INSIGHT TV program.
Despite my consistent aversion to tax increases I emphatically supported the one-tenth sales tax in five SE WI counties to support the new stadium because of the tremendous benefit.
Many years ago the WI Legislature had an opportunity to make the tax go away, but failed to take action.
